    Hello Saab family, I currently drive a 2004 arc sedan and am from SF bay area. CA. Ive had this car for a little over 2 years and love it. Ok, so I volunteered to help a friend change the spark plugs on a 2008 aero. Everything was fine until #5 when I broke the hard plastic spout piece on the...

    I'm in the process of re-working my project car's vacuum lines. I've made other posts, but it appears that all I need is a single check valve, and I'm in business. But, for a few $$ more, I'm considering replacing these lines with some flexible silicone lines. In looking at the existing...

    Revised my original thread to reflect a P0300 code, not P0400 which I originally posted. --------------------------------------- I have a 2004 9-3 ARC that has been throwing a P0300 code for almost 6 months now (FYI, I also own a 2007 Linear and a 1996 900SE Convertible). Even though the...

    Hi guys and gals, thanks in advance for any help. Would someone be able to look or know off the top of their head the routing of the said vacuum pipes? On the solenoids it is marked with vac out, now the problem I have is that the 2 solenoids on mine are plumed in differently but I'm assuming...

    Does anyone have a link to a diagram of the vacuum hoses that go to the turbo on a 99 saab SE 9-3? specifically the throttle body?
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    There is a vacuum feed (5mm approx - say 1/5 inch) from the inlet manifold connecting more or less immediately to a plastic Y piece. One arm heads towards the firewall and connects to a small red cylinder, and the other heads forwards over the top of the engine. It's all suffering from heat...

    Hi folks! Long time reader, however, new joiner! Looking for some assistance, I've had a search through, but my apologies if I've missed the obvious. Looking for a diagram/guidance as to the proper layout of the vacuum lines in relation to the turbo/boost valves etc. I've come across quite a...

    There is a small vacuum hose which is about 8 inches long and one quarter inch diameter which if its punctured affects the accelleration dramatically. Any body know what part I'm talking about. If so where can I get a piece ?
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Can anyone tell me where to connect the loose vacuum hose in the picture? I don't know if the pic will come out big enough. There's some sort of device on the firewall and the hose goes right down the middle of the picture.

    Hello! I have already doubled disassemble vacuum pump from the engine. This is necessary because there is an oil leak. A common problem with this model Saab. I brush, buy a new rubber seal and install vacuum pump to engine. I did that at the end of July. Oil leaks stopped. Last week I noticed...
